Heated Walkway & Step Covers
Snow removal that’s as easy as flipping a switch
Skip the Shoveling this Winter – Melt Ice and Snow Instead
Winter maintenance can be painless when you use Safeguard Heat-Traction™ step and walkway covers to melt ice and snow.
An electrically-powered pad under the anti-slip cover emits heat to keep snow and ice from building up. Heating elements plug into a standard 120V outlet and can stand alone or connect together. Unlike some chemicals, they work in all temperatures and melt snow at a rate of 2” per hour.
Don’t pay for the risky, back-breaking job of shoveling snow or introduce corrosive chemicals onto your steps, walkways, and the surrounding landscape and larger environment.
Even without the heated option, Safeguard’s Hi-Traction® step covers and walkway covers feature a rugged non-slip surface that grips footwear and prevents slips-and-falls. With a variety of base materials, grits, colors, logos and messaging, your safety upgrade works year-round.
Safeguard can help you design the best solution to prevent slips-and-falls this winter.

SAFEGUARD Color Options
Standard and Safety Colors
Use for a variety of industrial and safety applications. Color and markings can be used to attract attention, designate caution, and communicate safety information.
Our Premium color palette provides architects, facilities managers, and home owners with additional contemporary color choices for safety applications. These designer colors fit the aesthetic requirements for anti-slip protection at schools, commercial offices, institutional buildings, hotels and personal residences.
In darkness or a power outage, HiGlo-Traction Photoluminescent colors highlight the way.
Two-Tone Color Configurations Add Visibility
For added safety, two-tone step covers call attention to the leading edge of the step. A contrast between the step edge and the back of the tread below provides good definition and clear visibility for added awareness.
The colors on this web page serve only as a visual guide for initial selection of color. Actual finished product color may vary slightly from the version shown on your monitor based on grit size (coarseness) as well as the base material of construction. To see the actual color, please request a product sample.
Measure steps and walkways to be covered. We recommend leaving a small uncovered space at the edges in case of irregularities. If connecting multiple units, limit to 13 amps per Power Unit. To place an order, please call: 1-800-989-1695.
Follow instructions for step cover installation and walkway cover installation using mechanical fasteners. Insert the heating element between the solid substrate (concrete, wood, etc.) and the Hi-Traction Cover.
Placement of grommet holes on heaters can vary. Align these holes with each cover as holes are drilled. Pre-drilled holes will be aligned with the grommet holes in the heater; match each cover to its corresponding heater.
Warning messages, text, and logo graphics can be embedded into Safeguard® Step Covers to last for the life of the product. We can even match your color.
Combined with a Photoluminescent “Glow-in-the-Dark” background, the message is visible after dark and during power outages to provide safe egress/ingress during emergency evacuations.
